My little brother actually turned me on to this band. They're a new metal band (so this would be for progressive metal). They prefer clean sung vocals; the vocalist is obviously young and he sings with that popular high, almost whiny voice like many modern "emo" bands I suppose, but he does sing well. Their only album "Kezia" is a concept album to the best of my knowledge, and the music is varietous and complex, ranging from thrash/punk/metal to some sporatic acoustic portions. Inventive, technical, emotional and enjoyable. They also write more free-form songs. I think they suite the prog metal term. http://www.myspace.com/protestthehero - www.myspace.com/protestthehero . The songs "Heretics and Killers," "Blindfolds Aside" and "The Divine Suicide of K" are on the page and are from the album. There is also a track from their 2003 EP, but it doesn't sound all that great, so stick with the Kezia tracks.

A few people whose taste I hold in high regard love these guys... I find them pretty overrated, but they may indeed have a place in PA.

Well I don't think they're the cream of the crop, at least not yet. I don't know anyone who heralds them to be that good, so I can't agree with them being overrated, but I guess that's just subjective to you.

I only have their Kezia album,which is really good.I am on the fence about whether they should be included or not,but I will add them to the Prog Metal Team's voting chart.

Yup they should totally include this band. Also if you like Protest The Hero check out The Human Abstract.

That's the second band lately that I thought I added to the chart awhile ago and they apparently got lost in the shuffle.
 
Thanks Mike.

Protest the Hero is added?

Their style isn't my cup of proverbial tea, but I suppose I would call them progressive metal.
